Highlights of what Arvind Kejriwal said after taking oath as Delhi's chief minister Saturday:

-- I knew people of Delhi love us. But I did not know they love us so much. (On winning 67 of 70 seats.)

-- When the votes were counted, the seats were raining. This has to be a miracle.

-- People from all sections, religions voted for us.

-- God is trying to convey a message (by giving AAP such a majority). We have to understand the message.

-- When such a big victory comes, arrogance follows. We need to be humble. 

-- I see (some) arrogance in the AAP. This is not right.

-- We were over ambitious in the Lok Sabha election. We were taught a lesson.

-- If AAP volunteers do anything wrong, police should give them double the punishment.

-- We have to make Delhi the first corruption-free city in India. We can do it.

-- I respect Kiran Bedi. She is like my elder sister.

-- We (I and my colleagues) will work 24 hours a day. I promise that.

-- We will make Delhi a secure city for all. 

-- I will stay in Delhi and work for Delhi's development for five years.

-- If anybody demands bribe, do a sting with your mobile phone and send the recording to us.

-- We have to end VIP culture.

-- Please leave Delhi to the people of Delhi. (To Prime Minister Narendra Modi.) 

-- AAP volunteers are pearls, they are gold.

-- I am sure the Indian cricket team will win the World Cup.
